to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. president obama has put the issue of tax fairness front and center in this election. speaking in the east room of the white house, the president asked congress to immediately extend the bush tax cuts for those making less than $250,000 a year. >> the republicans say they don't want to raise taxes on the middle class, i don't want to to raise taxes on the middle class. so we should all agree to extend the tax cuts for the middle class. let's agree to do what we agree on. right? >> now, i'm going to show you some numbers in a few moments. you can be the judge. this really puts the republicans on the spot. they have to take a position on supporting middle class tax cuts without an equal tax cuts for the wealthiest of americans. now the romney campaign believes the best way to deal with the announcement is to say the president is raising taxes. president obama's response to even more bad economic news is a massive tax increase. here's the problem with the romney camp's statement. it is blatantly false. but they think the head shaking crowd wil

"politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. . >>> welcome to "politicsnation." i'm al sharpton. tonight's lead, the questions continue for mitt romney. late today mr. romney gave interviews to five different networks including nbc in an effort to diffuse the controversy over bain capital. for years romney has been saying he left bain in 1999 and that he couldn't be blamed for the thousands of workers laid off by bain in the years after that. his 2011 financial report says quote, he retired from bain capital on february 11th, 1999. quote, since february 11, 1999, romney has not had an active role with any bain capital entity and has not been involved in the operations of any bain capital entity in any way. romney signed this document personally. but today new information is emerging that tells a very different story. building on what we learned earlie

to you at home for staying with us for this hour. rachel has the night off. in colorado today, the suspect in last week's mass shooting in the denver suburb appears in court for the first time. james holmes had what is called a first advisement this morning. he sat with one of his court apointed attorneys. reporters in the courtroom said his lawyer shielded him from victims of the shooting and the relatives who had come for the hearing. he is not expected to be charged formally in the case until next week. the trial itself could be as much as a year away. prosecutors say the man stormed into a midnight premiere of the new batman movie last week in the city of aurora. he came in with tear gas and guns and wearing enough protective gear that police almost reportedly mistook him for one of their own. though officers arrived in two minutes, he managed to kill 12 people and wound 58 others. he was armed with a pair of glock handguns, a 12-gauge shotgun, and an ar-15 assault rifle. all appear to have been purchased legally. law enforcement in colorado said he had stockpiled bullets
. we're not going to ask you. >> i've been around forever and never seen this. >> we republicans used to be concerned back in the '90s when bill clinton would draw even with us on foreign policy. i want to talk really quickly, though, about that republican number because we've got some republicans around this table. let's talk about it. the democratic brand, doing pretty well. you know, it's 40/40. the republican brand upside down, let's talk about what's happened to our party over the past couple of years. >> a lot of erosion, joe. and i think that that's where the danger is for mitt romney, is that obama runs against a republican party rather than mitt romney and ties him to the republican party. >> republican party in washington. >> exactly. >> romney has to find a way to separate himself from the brand and lead the brand rather than follow the brand. >> sorry. >> i'm sorry, mark. >> goes back to convention speech. that's where i think he's going to have to become the leader of the republican party, rather than the congressional wing which is deeply unpopular. >> steve schmidt, i c
a look. good morning. thursday, july 12th. mitt romney, staring at the naacp convention. with us former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst, steve rattner. the executive editor of bloomberg news, al hunt and rounding out our michael bloomberg hour morning, columnist for bloomberg, margaret carlson. in new york, a man whose company i'm sure will be owned by michael bloomberg, executive editor at random house, "time" magazine contributing editor jon meacham and also editorial writer for "the washington post" and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart. jonathan. >> yeah. >> let's start with you. >> hey, joe. >> mitt romney, at the naacp convention. that just sort of -- like those old reesy's ads, two great tastes that go great together. not a natural audience for mitt romney and it didn't go especially well. why did he do it? >> i mean, i would hope he did it because what he says, you know, looking for every vote possible and wanted to show respect to the community and ask for their votes. but you don't go there and say that you are going to be better for the african-american
us from capitol hill. congressman, thank you for being with us. let's talk about the leaks and your concerns. do we have any indications that they could have come directly from the white house and that they could have been blessed by the president? >> you see, andrea, it's a whole panoply of leaks. it rises to the concern where you have even democrats raising questions about the origins of these leaks, and so we know a couple of things. the most damaging -- and i would argue, andrea, these are some of the most damaging leaks to our national security probably in my lifetime. serious, serious consequences. in some of the leaks it showed it had to have a high level of clearance, covert access to the information and access to the situation room and as a former fbi investigator that narrows that pull pretty closely. as we would say, that's a clue about where you can start looking for where these leaks could have originated. i think that's why all of the speculation both on democrats and republicans, it may have come out of the white house. >> we're talking about the number of books inclu
was wrong that there is no so-called cure for homosexuality. allen chambers joins us tonight. and think political debates can get heated here? well, check this tv face off from iman, jordan out. >> nobody got hurt and let me finish with a solution in search of a problem. republican-backed voter i.d. laws designed to keep democrats from voting. we begin with the fight for 234e middle class. david corn is washington bureau chief for mother jones magazine and the author of the book "showdown." robert costa is with national review. today the president tried to turn the conversation to a message of tax fairness and called on congress to pass an extension for part of the bush tax cuts for people making less than $250,000 a year. the tax cuts are set to expire at the end of this year. >> we all say we agree we should extend the tax cuts for 98% of the american people. everybody says that. the republicans say they don't want to raise taxes on the middle class, i don't want to raise taxes on the middle class. so we should all agree to cut the tax cuts for the middle class. let's agree to do what
such little agreement among us on different side of the the fence, at least we can agree that here's a group of folks who ought to have a n continuation of the bush tax cuts. what's the response. >> two big take aways from today. one on the politics. general election campaign, he's trying to throw a bone to frustrated middle class voters say i'm with you. make sure your rates stay at the rate they are today. but politics on capitol hill are a little different. two years ago, president obama extended the cuts. obama's signalsiling to people capitol hill, but laying out the stakes for that this year. >> why not do that for which tlgd be agreement on. he or she who's making $261,000 a year is going to enjoy the bush tax cut for the first 250 of that. >> you're committing the sin of talking sense. it was a question our pal didn't answer when he gave his response to you. the president saying we can agree on 98%, but republicans are holding that 98% hostage as they did in 2010, knowing that it's very difficult to justify continuing these tax cut bonuses for the rich. the only way they can get th
's used this weird timeline of '99 to 2002 when all the bad stuff happened, i wasn't there. >> right. it's a product of the romney campaign's attempt to keep this incredibly simple. in the primary, the same documents were kicking around in the primary and the campaign would never engage in them directly. the republicans opponents were shopping them around but they backgrounded reporters, talked reporters out of writing about it. they kept everything very abstract. there's a saying if you're explaining, you're losing. they clearly believe it. they have not explained everything. in a presidential campaign that's not an option. the heat sometimes gets so hot, you have to explain, you have to engage. what they have succeeded in doing is pushing all the explanation into the summer and fall, when they could have done it last year. >> now you're starting to see republicans question sort of what's going on and how they are handling this. politico has a fairly extensive roster of prominent republican strategists saying you guys are going to have to tackle this. jonathan bernstein in the "washingt
a phrase to focus on. good morning, everyone. it's wednesday, july 18th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle. yeah. i want to hear about that. wasp in the air. that's not a good day. we'll get to that. national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst john heilemann. like a wasp in your ear. and msnbc political analyst and visiting professor at nyu, former democratic congressman harold ford jr. >> good morning. >> how was your night with tiffany? >> tiffany amber thiessen, more on that later, she's great. great american. >> god. it's just not right. i'm serious. >> no telling what willie will or won't do after dark. >> that's a true statement, mike barnicle. we have some news to get to. >> we do. we do. you might just be be -- >> might be in that news. >> who spends an evening with tiffany when they do a show like this? but okay. >> willie geist. >> i want to hear about that. sounds like something people would want to hear in the morning. >> oh, my goodness. i'll tell you. after we do headlines. >> we'll do news and tal
an historic number of seats in the u.s. house and made big gains in the u.s. senate. the cook political report says he believes a majority of the 87 gop freshmen elected in the 2010 shellacking are in good shape but he predicts no more than an eight seat gain for democrats. >> i believe what the american crossroads said is partially true. is it going to be sky-high, probably not. but there will be some mobilization on the republican side for or against, if you will, obamacare. let's be honest. the majority of the people that were for obamacare are voting for president obama and the folks against it clearly will vote for governor romney. the real question is, hopefully we'll have this conversation, is whether or not health care is going to be a major issue for down ballot individuals that are running on state-wide offices come november. probably not. it most likely still will be the economy. we saw a recent poll that came out today that said 44% of americans still frankly do not understand what obamacare is and that's still not the number one issue for them. it still is the economy. at the end
on it. that's "hardball" for now. thank you for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >> good evening americans. wemcome to "the ed show" from new york. the blue birds were out for mitt romney during a speech to the naacp. tonight, i'll show you why he got off easy. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> this was perhaps one of the most negative reactions mitt romney has had in the course of his 2012 presidential campaign. >> mitt romney gets booed mercilously for his vision for america. >> i think we expected that, of course. >> tonight, hillary shenten of the naacp, and philadelphia mayor michael nutter on what happens when mitt romney tells the truth. >>> repeal and disgrace. house republicans vote to take health care away from americans. house democratic whip steny hoyer is here with reaction. >> and today, the congressional budget office debunks one of the greatest republican lies ever told. >> unless the president gets off of his absolute obsession with raising taxes -- >> underbarack obama, he has one plan and one plan only. that's to raise ever
, that uses a clip from a speech where he said, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. his campaign reinforced his defense in a new web video. >> romney's not telling the truth about what the president said, and is taking the president's words out of context. >> i want to bring in "washington post" opinion writer and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart and the atlantic's national political reporter, molly ball. good morning to both of you. and jonathan, you've heard this message before from the president. but perhaps this one time it wasn't expressed in the best way. what do you think here? is this something that the obama campaign will need to worry about going forward? >> well, clearly they're concerned about it, at least, because the president addressed it in his event yesterday. so, you know, it's one of those things that was maybe inartfully said, but, you know, fundamentally, it was true. and i believe it's the obama campaign that has put out a commercial or at least i've seen the clips, of mitt romney saying virtually the exact same thing to, i believe it was to
of us, no dice. no wonder he says corporations are people. no wonder he thinks we don't need more firefighters. no wonder he makes $10,000 bets. and according to newspaper reports, this event seemed right out of the pages of "the great gatsby." the lawn started at the beach and ran toward the front door for a quarter of a mile. running over brick yards and burning gardens finally reached a house drifting up the side in bright vines as those from the momentum of its run. in fact, the romney event was so unbelievable that i brought in some of our friends from the political subverseties to do a reenactment. you're going to hear things that they said at the fund raiser. these are real quotes. >> i don't think the common person is getting it. we've got the message. but my college kid, the babysitter, the nails ladies, all these people who have the right to vote, they don't get what's going on. i just feel that if you're lower income, one, you're not as educated. two, they don't get how it works. >> right. >> common people don't get it. don't understand how it works. are you series? >>
to be part of the olympics in any way you can be part of it. >> when is the event and for those of us that don't follow the sport is there rounds of competition, just one chance, what happens? >> i have to tell you, this is ann's sport. i'm not sure which day the sport goes on. she will get to see it. i will not be watching the event. i hope her horse does well. >> good morning. it's thursday, july 26th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, hello, mike. i'm not going to say anything. don't you worry. you look quite fine today. >> thank you. >> msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national committee, michael steele is with us. and msnbc political analyst and visiting professor at nyu, former democratic congressman harold ford jr. and, of course, willie geist in london for the olympics. >> how is your horse doing? >> he doesn't know the name of the horse, the event the horse is going in, and if there's actually a name of the event that has sort of a french flair to it he's not going to say it. >> dressage. >> could he
the taxes like crazy. we need freedom. >> good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. mitt romney spoke to the naacp convention in houston, texas today. he delivered a speech short on specifics and long on tepid generalities. >> some may wonder why a republican would campaign in the african-american community and address the naacp. i hope to address every american of every race, creed, and sexual orientation. from the poorest to the richest and everyone in between. >> romney was greeted with polite applause throughout the speech, and even got some encouraging organ music. >> i can't promise you that i'll agree on every issue, but i do promise that your hospitality to me today will be returned. we will know one another. and we will work to common purpose. >> the audience gave romney their attention and a fair hearing. at the end of the speech, the crowd respectfully offered a standing ovation to the candidate. the attendees gave him some credit for showing up. unlike the previous president, george w. bush, who openly shunned any invitations to the naacp convention. but there was on
. >> thanks and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. you know what was a really bad time? the george w. bush presidency was a really bad time. and not just if you were a liberal and you disagreed with george w. bush, just if you were an american, the george w. bush presidency, the bush/cheney years were bad years for us as a country. the national ubunemployment rate went from a little over 4% when he took office to nearly 8% by the time he left. we went from a budget surplus of more than $200 billion to a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars. after decades of u.s. household income climbing during the 1980s and 1990s, it fell off a cliff in the bush years. after poverty declined in the 1980s and declined in the 1990s, in the bush years, it went up. by the time he left office, 6 million more americans were added to the rolls of americans who didn't have health insurance. wall street in the bush years collapsed. the country was plunged into the worst depression since the great depression in the 1930s. the bush/cheney years were a disaster. they were also a ser
. >> thank you, you too. and also, thanks to all of you at home for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago this week, presidential candidate senator barack obama was wrapping up a worldwide tour through europe and the middle east. designed to amp up his foreign policy credentials. here's what that looked like. as many as 200,000 people crowded their way into berlin's tear garden park to hear senator obama's vision for the world in july of 2008 and to cheer. and cheer, and cheer some more. >> the greatest danger of all is to allow nuance to divide us from one another, the walls between old allies on either side of the atlantic cannot stand. the walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. the walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, christians and muslims and jews cannot stand. these now are the walls we must tear down. >> senator obama was greeted abroad like a political rock star. and not just by his tens of thousands of adoring fans. as frank rich put it at the time, senator obama was treated like a, quote, president in waiting
class men. the polls are showing us while he is doing well with women and some other groups, this is a group that seems to be wavering between president obama and mitt romney. a recent average, shows the president with less than a three-point lead within the margin of error. on the fourth o of july, he addressed military members saying we need more immigration laws that allow immigrants to stay, like the dream act. mitt romney was up in new hampshire. while he tried to shy away from politics officially, he has been wrapped up in this debate over whether or not he contradicted himself in his campaign over the health care mandate. is it a penalty? is it a tax? romney says the supreme court called it a tax, so it is a tax. his campaign said otherwise. we will likely turn the focus back to the economy as new job numbers come out for june. lynn? >>> scientists at the large hadron collider have announced they have likely discovered the so-called god particle. it may explain how stars, planets, even life, how these things were created and held together. science editor, lawrence mcg

to us, too. in january 2011, he gave an interview to the atlantic in which he said we worked very hard to keep our fingerprints off these proposals because we thought that the only way the american people would know a great debate was going on was if the measures were not bipartisan. you know what? mcconnell was correct. i think that's one of the most profound things anyone has said about politics. what he understood is what makes a bill bipartisan is not the ideas in it or the spirit in which it is offered. it's whether any legislatures from the other party sign on. if they do, by definition, the bill is partisan. so by keeping his members off the democrats' major bills, he made each and every one of those pieces of legislation into a partisan bill and destroyed the president's hope for image as a bipartisan compromiser. this week on fox news, mcconnell gave another remarkably honest interview. they have been saying repeal and replace, repeal and replace, but they haven't come together behind anything that would replace the affordable care act and cover a substantial chunk of the unin
of integrit edecency and humility who have called injustice by its name. for every one of us, a particular person comes to mind. someone who set a standard of conduct and made us better by their example. for me that man is my father, george romney. it wasn't just that my dad helped write the civil rights provision for the michigan constitution, though he did. it wasn't just that he helped create michigan's first civil rights commission or that as governor he marched for civil rights on the streets of detroit. though he did those things, too. more than these acts, it was the kind of man he was and the way he dealt with every person, black or white. he was a man of the fairest instincts and a man of faith who knew that every person was a child of god. i'm grateful to him for so many things and, above all, for the knowledge of god. whose ways are not always our ways but whose justice is certain and whose mercy endures forever. every good cause on this earth relies in the end on a plan bigger than ours. without dependence on god, dr. king said, our efforts turn to ashes and our sunrises in the
